  1. Giddey to all, I tried to scratch build the coal winches, but as they are very tiny peaces (3 mm height) and 20 x, I did not succeed. So I decided to 3D print them. I worked many hours with TINKERCAD and learned to use it. Then I uploaded the 3D file at SHAPEWAYS and ordered the model. Starting the next lesson: the printability! Loose shells, thin walls and the scale. The design of the coal winch is relatively simple there are only 8 shells, so I got it after 6 tries. Here are the picĀ“s of this design: and the real thing: here is the next step for the build, 3D printed boat davits and the 2 boat cranes: take look at the red arrow ! This is the previous scratch build part and should be exchanged with 3D Part boat crane The boat davits - challenge was/is they should be movable! Design relatively simple: and the real challenge - the 2 boat cranes! I have to make 2 different designs to get it placed at my model. As designed with tinkercad: As designed with tinkercad: A very komplex design, 4 movable parts, 2 different designs and more than 60 shells! When shapeways noted issues, I had to disconnect up to 20 shells, -change the design, realign and connect the shells again. When uploaded I often discovered missing shells, and start all over again. Here what I ordered at shapeways: I am waiting now for the printed parts, I am very curious! regards Andreas
  2. Hello, here a view at the workbench: I am waiting for the 2 Cranes and the boat davits printed by shapeways The tiny coal winches are allready fitted. Thanks for looking! cheers Andreas
  3. I picked up a P-59, one of Hobbycraft's later releases (2002), and it is an overall nice release. One of their best in my opinion. I just picked up a 3D printer, so I decided to design a quick cockpit detail set. I know there was a long out of production Cutting Edge cockpit set, and there is a True Details set still in production. Not trying to disparage any company in particular, but I have not been a huge fan of the latter company's releases. They are Ok, but not my cup of tea. In any event, I have gotten the main dimensions, and have put in place the front and rear bulkheads. Unfortunately, there are virtually no good cockpit/interior photos available for free online! I need to order the Erection and Maintenance manual along with Steve Pace's book on the Airacomet. If anyone has, or knows where I can find some good pics, please let me know!
